LB James Harrisonhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/james-harrison/f955db12-de79-47a3-9c61-d50c2583d49b/)

I hope for a bigger spread. I just think they are going to try and get Mendy going. That might translate into less scoring.

I hope for a bigger spread. I just think they are going to try and get Mendy going. That might translate into less scoring.

True, but the more we get the running game going, the more successful our passing game will be, which will limit our turnovers. With our offence, we have to run to setup the pass, not the other way around. Hopefully we get the running game going early. If we do, we will easily win.

We stopped them good. Now at least get a field goal in the next drive.

NYC_Steeler

When Mendy starts dancing, he doesn't get much.

Exordium
10-16-2011, 01:16 PM
Miller's looking good both receiving and blocking.

Showing why he's one of the best in the game.

Very nice drive - good combination of run vs pass - they should've been using this style all long.

dcsteel5804
10-16-2011, 01:20 PM
The hate for mendenhall was bad these past 2 weeks. He's a good back when he runs with purpose. I just don't know if we'll have the money for him next year

Rick5895
10-16-2011, 01:20 PM
Well done. I guess watching last week did Mendy some good. He's running hard.

ricardisimo
10-16-2011, 01:20 PM

Yeah he's a FAR better running back than Redman when he runs hard, the problem was he's been trying to run more Barry Sanders the last few weeks and he's not that type of running back.

NYC_Steeler
10-16-2011, 01:22 PM
Suisham doesn't have much of a leg, huh? Short kickoff.

dcsteel5804
10-16-2011, 01:24 PM
Very true. The problem is, he isn't barry sanders. He needs to work with what he has, and that a banged up line. You just can't dance behind that kind of line. Good start so far

Offence looks good, I hope Ariens doesn't out think himself and try to go bombs away now that the defence is going to worry about the running game. Gotta stay with what works, even if we get stuffed at the line on a few plays. Not every play is going to work as expected.

If he's smart, we'll pound the rock and go with the short passing game, with may a couple more shots deep. We just need to keep it simple, this is not a good team we're playing. The only way we can get hurt is if we hurt ourselves

shaner82
10-16-2011, 01:56 PM
Why oh why can't Ariens learn to use the RB in the passing game rather than an empty backfield. Or pitch it out wide to the RB, that's a high success play at the goal line. Man, he's so one dimensional.

Mendy's getting shut down now...

It happens. Not every running play will get positive yards, and that will be the test for Ariens, will he adjust to how the defence is now playing, or will he continue running the same plays that have since stopped working due to adjustments from the defence?

We'll see I guess.

Steelers get the ball to start the second half - need to score on the first drive to end this

Ben missed several throws but the only real long term concern is Suisham
